Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows

Holmes and Watson are back! Yahoo has just debuted the first two official posters/banners for Warner Bros' upcoming sequel Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, once again directed by Guy Ritchie and again starring Robert Downey Jr. as Holmes and Jude Law as Watson. We already got to see a first look photo for this late last year, but with the first official trailer coming with Harry Potter later this week, it's time to start up the marketing for their December release. The two banners contain close-ups of Holmes and Watson, as well as glimpses of Jared Harris as Moriarty and Noomi Rapace as "Sim" in the background.

Sherlock Holmes and his sidekick Dr. John Watson join forces to outwit and bring down their fiercest adversary, Professor Moriarty, in this sequel to Lionel Wigram's new take on Sherlock Holmes from 2009.

Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows is again directed by British filmmaker Guy Ritchie, of Lock Stock & Two Smoking Barrels, Snatch, Revolver, RocknRolla, and the first Sherlock Holmes. The screenplay was written by husband & wife writers Kieran & Michele Mulroney, who wrote and directed the indie film Paper Man. Warner Bros and Silver Pictures are bringing Sherlock Holmes 2 to theaters starting December 16th.

    Still can't wait to watch the first one.
    • You didn't see Sherlock Holmes? It was great! Guy Ritchie's style just works well with it, crazy fun and Robert Downey Jr is just awesome.

        Was going to stream it on netflix, but it's still not available for streaming. Can't rent locally due to many shady businesses. No friend's have it, so ... I'll probably have to break down and buy the puppy. Oh yeah, Thanks for following me on Disqus ūüėČ

        Agree with Alex. It was good. Maybe a bit too over the top but it was a lot of fun!

        The music and atmosphere were really good, too.  They did a great job of immersing us in Victorian London.  And, of course, you can't overlook Robert Downey Jr.'s performance.  It's one of my favorite movies of recent times.

          agree on the music, it was so stylish and played well into the movie

        I liked it myself.  Nearly avoided it due to moaning and groaning from the "It's gonna suck because--" crowd, but decided to just see it for myself.  I ended up really enjoying it, and Downey is a fantastic Holmes.  The cast was great, and the story worked well. Here's hoping that this sequel is as good as, or better, than the first film.

      lol, I haven't seen yet either! I do look forward to watching it just the same. I'm actually hooked on the new Sherlock series on BBC. It's streaming on Netflix. Definitely check it out.

        It's a great series, isn't it, Chris?  Who would have thought that Holmes could have been updated....but they pulled it off magnificently.

        Agreed!  I loved RDJ in Ritchie's Holmes so I almost stayed away from the BBC's Sherlock.  But damn I'm glad I didn't.  I've been telling people its the best piece of entertainment I've seen all year!  Cumberbatch and Freeman are awesom!  And I can't wait to see Cumberbatch in TinkerTailer Soldier Spy and RBoth of them in The Hobbit.
  • They look CG
  • Jez
    What the Hell is a Victorian era detective doing with a WW2 Luger?
    • Sam Doyle
      Maybe you are just wrong?
    • JT
      Thats not a world war II luger.
    • Cody W.
      Thats a Mauser c96 broomhandle. C96 for no its not a luger.
      • JAM
        The movie takes place in 1893, so if that is the gun Holmes got it a bit early.
        • Jericho
          actually it was never given its official name until 1896 but until that time, the gun was around for five years before that......
          • Rusty Shackleford
            no, it was given the name in 1896 as that is the year Mauser began manufacturing it. it was not around for any time before that, trust me. although the first movie took place in 1892, it hasn't yet been said that the movie necessarily takes place in 1896 as far as i know. it could simply a small historical error. not really a big deal. or, maybe it DOES take place in 1896. 
          • Beer
            Prototype testing begun in 1894, so now were only one year away from 1893 ūüėČ ¬†and who knows. Maybe testing begun in¬†January 1st of¬†1894 and the movie takes place 31st¬†of December 1893! then were only 2 days off....
          • harm
            The first patent for the Mauser pistol was (or wasn't depending on perspective) given in 1895

    With Jared Harris as Moriarty and Stephen Fry as Mycroft, this is going to be frickin awesome.
  • Jericho
    excited mode activated....

    I just wish we could see Noomi a bit better in that second poster.

    This will definitely conquer the box office in December! Can't wait. I loved the first one too...
  • Brandon
    Posters leave much to be desired. Cannot wait for the trailer though.  NOM Rachel McAdams
  • Ron Torque
    I loved the first movie and will definitely love this one.
